Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the creators of the Harold & Kumar franchise and directors of upcoming American Reunion, have recently been quoted saying they’d like to remake Back to the Future.
Deadline broke the news of the deal but Moviehole got the quote out of the young filmmakers. Here’s Hurwitz:
We want Back to the Future, just come out and say it. That’s our favorite trilogy. We’re always having this conversation….
I wouldn’t want to do it now because people would be like, ‘Oh, there’s no way it will be as good as the original.’ But 30 years from now when Spielberg’s like 90 and those guys are kind of on their way out, and those movies just look really old because we’re watching movies that are old, literally in two dimensions or something, it would be great to have all these classics that you’re able to remake.
